“Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Celebrated a friend's birthday here at a wonderful window table looking at the night lights in Arlington. The Cowboy rib-eye was very good, flavorful and not very fatty. The potatoes au gratin were fantastic, the potatoes were cooked and not swimming in sauce. The pumpkin souffle was light and flavorful. The only reason I didn't select excellent is because the service wasn't at the same level, and at a place as nice as Cacharel the little things matter. For example, a sauce we ordered with the steak came out 5 minutes after the steaks were served and we were told it was because the Bearnaise sauce is "made to order"; but it was ordered at the same time the steak was. Also, the waiter seemed annoyed at one of the members of our party who told the waiter that an item ordered wasn't as good as the waiter claimed when he recommended it. After that conversation, the waiter wasn't very attentive. Short story: Expect great food, average service and you won't be disappointed.

“Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday here. We had a table by the window where we watched a major rainstorm. Excellent 3course meal for $49.00. Squash soup with chestnuts was yummy. The crab cake with lobster was really crispy and all seafood. My best course was a pumpkin soufflé. Mmmmh! We enjoyed the guitar plater and piano. Service was very good!

“Food that's incredible, service that's incredibly bad”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

On a recent lunch visit I arrived at 1:15 pm, and the staff had apparently decided to call it a day. I waited ten minutes in a near empty restaurant for someone to seat our table of 3. Kudos for doing a "restaurant week" lunch menu for 25 dollars. The gazpacho was the best I've had, the salmon was delectable with perfect seasoning, the chocolate mousse was over the top, and the waiter was apathetic and a bordering on rude. I guess he planned to go home early and we spoiled things by ordering a nice bottle of wine and enjoying the magnificent view of Six Flags.

“Anniversary Celebration”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Last year for our 44th anniversary, we invited another couple to join us for dinner at Cacharel's. We've been in Arlington for over 30 years and had heard of the great dining at Cacharel's but had always thought it too expenses for us. We bit the bullet and went last year. It was great! good food, good company and a lovely view of the surrounding area.
